Title題名 : Supporting TOEIC preparation
Type種類 : Presentation (20 mins)
Category部類 : Individual presentation
Language言語 : English
Abstract要約 :

From 2018 students at my university will be required to score higher than 400 on the TOEIC at the end of their first year and then 450 at the end of their second year. Failure to attain those scores will result in students not being able to take 2nd or 3rd year classes, respectively.  They will be registered in a TOEIC certificate class which is entirely self-study. The main activity of the class is an online software program that students will be expected to complete. They also have intensive English classes, but those classes concentrate on preparing them to take mostly science related classes taught in English and they focus on reading, listening to lectures, making presentations, and speaking. Although a teacher (or teachers) will be assigned to be responsible for the classes, no class time is scheduled except for an orientation at the beginning of the year. This means that students will have very little support to reach the TOEIC benchmarks. This presentation will introduce a Moodle course that will try to at least partially remedy that lack of support. The course will offer strategies for taking the TOEIC, strategy practice, and practice items for the TOEIC. Since the course will be untested, the presenter hopes that interested participants will offer suggestions for improving the course.
